  1. Thank you for posting this. We have been blessed with a “real” vacation this year. My sister-in-law is getting married in California, and we are of course going to my husband’s only sibling’s wedding. Family members have helped us with travel costs and have offered guest rooms, but we wanted to see how much fun stuff we could fit in a tiny budget. It’s so nice to hear suggestions from a local mom as to what is worth the money and my son would actually like.

    May God continue to give you the strength to go through this layoff.

  2. Vermont?

  3. http://onlychildadventures.blogspot.com/2011/05/staycation-in-louisville-ky.html

    I notice you don’t have Kentucky…want to link to my blog?

  4. No Nevada? Let me know if you want me to write a post about things in the Las Vegas area. We’ve lived here for four years, and I have several ideas I could share!

  5. I don’t see Louisiana. I am from Lafayette and have lived in New Orleans as well. I am sure I can come up with a few things if it’s not too late too add. Or, if you do this again next year, let me know for then.

  6. Idaho is a state, too. 😉

  7. Just a heads up- the link to the Utah ideas sends you to a blog that is only open to invited readers.
    Thanks so much for this list, hope our state is fixed soon!

  8. Montgomery, Alabama!!!!!!!!
